    I got 2 Barred Rock pullets a month or so ago, age unknown, somewhat mistreated, toes on one curled, I'm assuming from a wire bottomed cage, very light weight. Well after being in a run by their self and some good food and lots of clean water, Laverne, I call them Laverne and Shirley, layed her first mini egg 3 days ago and Shirley layed her first today. Laverne's egg today is starting to show a size increase. I may be putting them in with the others shortly.

    Our first dozen of eggs. My husband decided to eat one of the large green ones from EE and a double yolk. Doesn’t it look amazing? 0D569D8B-39D6-40C4-9B44-E2F3D2261A9F.jpeg ED402C57-0F3F-4CCA-87F6-A96808ED88A1.jpeg
